LA Times Quote that we can never forget

"A word to the Black Man. … Do not point your nose too high. Do not swell your chest too much. Do not boast too loudly. Do not be puffed up. … You are on no higher plane, deserve no new consideration, and will get none. … No man will think a bit higher of you because your complexion is the same as that of the victor at Reno."The LA Times, Shortly after Jack Johnson became the heavyweight champion of the world.

My interpretation of this quote: America will always dislike a proud black man and do what they can to humble him. Be proud and don't let ANYONE steal your manhood.
